Thems the facts.

Today: "BBC Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyons said that the case for the closure of 6 Music had not been made."

Not that they've backtracked, or been swayed by the public outcry, but that it was a bad idea to start with.

The proposed closures were announced in March (also when the Facebook group was set-up). The report (two months later) of a 50% increase in listeners was March 09 - March 10 figures weren't out instantly.

I wrote to the BBC Trust. Signed all the petitions. Asked my prospective MPs where they stood (among other things). But, I'm under no misapprehension that it had anything to do with this decision. And, I found the "what will we save next" crowing of Laverne today frankly in deeply bad taste. How about public sector jobs, Lauren?
